, the united states's perspective on relations with the muslim world and where do we go from here with the muslim world? for much of the past decade since the events of 9/11 we talked a lot about the muslim world. in our media it has become part of the language of our politics. it matters a lot to us. thinking often is the united states or the muslim world are not on the right path -- not on the same page. we fought a lot about how to fix that relationship and particularly think about writing those things that are not going right. that context, that worries us more than the question of extremism. the perception that the muslim world thinks too much about conservative ideas and too permissive towards extremism and this is something that will be addressed for policy consent. much of that is quite true. extremism is an issue of paramount concern. it is a foreign policy consideration. it is the major focus of u.s. foreign policy and to that extent it is also the way in which many americans view the muslim world. but there's also a tendency that it becomes too all consuming. it becomes

reform for the financial sector in the united states and around the world also stimulated sessions, president obama sent one of his top economic advisors larry summers, chairman of the council of economic advisors, the office that coordinates economic policy for the president. he previously served as treasury secretary dure the clinton administration as well as president of harvard university. i interviewed him early this evening at the conference center but before we show you that interview, president obama met house republicans today in baltimore. he did an interesting exchange with them and here is a look at some of the dialogue. >> if you were to listen to the debate, and frankly how some of you went after this bill, you would think that this thing was some bolshevik plot. i means that's how you guys... that's how you guys presented it. and so i am thinkg to myself, well, how is it that a plan that is pretty centrist, look, i mean, i'm just saying, i know you guys digree. but if you look at the facts of the bill, most independent observers would say this is actually what many r
're going to be looking to see is the united states the one that is developing clean coal technology. is the united states developing our natural gas resources the most effective way? is the united states the one that is going to lead in electric cars. because if we're not leading, those other countries are going to be leading. what i want to do is work with west virginia to figure out how we can seize that future. but to do that, that means there is going to have to be some transition. we can't operate the coal industry in the united states as if we're still in the 1920s or the 1930s or the 1950s. we have to be thinking what does that industry look like in the next 100 years, and it is going to be different. and that means there is going to be some transition and that's where i think a well thought through policy of incentivizing the new while, you know, recognizing that there is going to be a transition process and we're not just suddenly putting the old out of business right away, that has to be something that both republicans and democrats should be able to embrace. cared me to d

in massachusetts were opposed to trials being held in the united states. to have the terrorist trials to be held in civilian court. that plus the detroit bombing on christmas day which the administration totally mishandled and has continued to mishandle, i think the democrats in the congress, you know, are genuinely getting nervous. i thought from day one, i said this was the most irresponsible decision any president ever made to hold these trials in new york city. and democrats were lined up hyped the president almost 100%. it's only in the last week to two weeks that they started to really feel the heat and they've started to read the political tea leaves. so, whatever the reason is whether it's coming out of new york, i don't think it should be in any civilian court in the united states. >> paul: that's a question i want to ask because the president white house spokesman let it be known they want it to be a civilian trial, the marrow posed to it and democratic senators, but maybe somewhere else. you're saying no way, you don't want them to be tried as civilians at all. >> i think it's wrong a
